California Privacy Rights

If you are a California resident, you may have certain rights with respect to your personal information including the following rights:

  • the right to know, by way of our Privacy Policy and any specific inquiries you direct to us, where personal information we have about you comes from, what we use that information for, whether it is being disclosed or sole, and to whom it is being disclosed or sold;
  • the right to “opt-out” of FastDemocracy’s sale of your personal information to any third parties;
  • the right, with some exceptions, to have your personal information deleted from Tank Connection’s possession or control; and
  • the right to receive equal service and pricing from Tank Connection even if you exercise any of your privacy rights.

In addition, you may have the right to request and receive certain information about a company’s disclosure of your personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing use, and your choices with respect to such disclosures.  Our Site does not authorize the collection of personal information by third parties except as provided in this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions or concerns about your California privacy rights, our Privacy Policy, or our use of your Personal Information, you may direct your inquiries to us through the contact information below.  For all California residents, we will respond to such inquiries within forty-five (45) days and at no cost to you.

If you are a California resident under the age of 18, and a registered user of any Site where this policy is posted, California Business and Professions Code Section 22581 permits you to request and obtain removal of content or information you have publicly posted. To make such a request, please send an email with a detailed description of the specific content or information to Please be aware that such a request does guarantee removal of all the content you have posted, and there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested.

Children and Parental Consent

Our Site is not directed to children under age 13, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. Children under 13 should not provide their Personal Information to us through our Site or in writing. If we learn that Personal Information belonging to anyone under the age of 13 is stored on the Site, we will immediately delete such information and refrain from using it for any purpose.

Although our Site does not target children over 13, they may register with our site.  Upon receipt of such a request to register, we will ask the child to provide a parent or guardian’s email so we can request consent.  In the email we will explain what information we are collecting, how we plan to use it, how the parent can provide consent, and how the parent can revoke consent.

If we do not receive parental consent within a reasonable time, we will delete the parent’s contact information and any other information collected from the child.  We will not use these parent emails to market to the parent, unless the parent has expressly opted in to email marketing or has separately participated in an activity that allows for such email contact.

Upon receipt of parent approval, we may ask the child to provide certain information for notification and security purposes, including a parent or guardian’s email address, the child’s first name and gender, the child’s member or account username, and password.  Children should not provide any personal information in their usernames.

Certain features of our Site cannot function without us first having received Personal Information. As a result, children over 13 may not be able to access certain features if required Personal Information has not been requested or provided.  For example, we will not collect or employ geo-location features without express consent from a parent or guardian.

For school-based activities, teacher and/or school administrators can act in place of a parent or guardian to consent to collection of personal information from children. Schools should always notify parents about these activities. For more information on parental rights with respect to a child’s educational record under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), please visit the FERPA site.
